Flight 1 (17 notes)

White
2010 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bâtard-Montrachet France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru
95 points
A small glass from magnum. Amazing richness and intensity in the nose. Delicious so powerful and creamy with excellent cut. Lots of spice intensity throughout. 94-96
Red
1990 Domaine de Montille Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Pommard 1er Cru
flawed
A bit stewy and dirty in the nose. Earthy black fruit, but once again dirty and seemingly damaged on the palate.
White
2014 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Bourgogne Blanc France, Burgundy, Bourgogne Blanc
92 points
Full crisp nose of minerals, under-ripe white and stone fruit. Very taut, crips and mineral driven. Clean and fresh throughout. Sea breeze finish.
Red
2013 Jean-Marie Fourrier Latricières-Chambertin France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru
93 points
From Jero. Super spice and meat filled nose with leaner, candied black cherry. Good plush fruit with moderate richness. Lots of sweet black and red cherry. Fun to drink now.
Red
2006 Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux Romanée St. Vivant France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru
92 points
Good black cherry with lots of Vosne spice. Young and fairly firm at this stage, though still showing some spice nuance and textural interest. Needs time. Lots of upside from here.
Red
1985 Maison Leroy Volnay France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay
92 points
A pretty remarkable 30+ year old village wine. Deep nose of maturing black and red cherry fruit with lots of earth tones. The palate is quite smooth and layered. Mature fruit with earth-driven complexity. Nice polish.
Red
1996 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru
93 points
Fairly intense mature black and red cherry, with lots of spice and florals. Good freshness and lift across the palate. Right in the middle of its prime drinking window.
Red
2009 Domaine G. Roumier / Christophe Roumier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Cras France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru
93 points
A soaring wow nose -- sweet, candied red cherry with clay and spice. Terrific concentration of red cherry and cranberry fruit. Just starting to show some earth tones. For all the ripeness and concentration, this is fresh throughout.

2002 Coche-Dury Meursault Les Rougeots France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault
The nose shows a fair bit oxidation. The palate is more fresh than the nose but still seems prematurely advanced. Still has that trademark density and chewiness across the palate. 88-90 point showing?
Red
1983 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
90 points
Interesting and compelling nose of mature, dried plum fruit with mushroom and decaying earth. Nice freshness and still rich fruit on the palate. Lots of decaying earth and dried spice adding complexity.
White
2012 Domaine Leflaive Meursault 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Âne France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru
90 points
A fairly reduced and matchstick filled nose. The palate shows less reduced and the rich orchard fruit is apparent. Good spice throughout. Young, and chewy finish. Upside from here.
Red
1983 Domaine G. Roumier / Christophe Roumier Bonnes Mares France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Bonnes Mares Grand Cru
95 points
A highlight tasted at the auction. A mesmerizing nose that is so layered with mature red and black fruit, clay and earth. Palate is fresh and similar to the nose very deep and layered. Red fruit is bright with lots of earthen complexity. Terrific.
Red
1966 Domaine Yves Lamadon Echezeaux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Echezeaux Grand Cru
Terrific mature flavors with lots of dried fruit, mushroom and decaying earth. Still fresh with good length on the palate.
Red
2013 Sylvain Cathiard Chambolle-Musigny Les Clos De L'orme France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny
Very sexy and appealing black cherry with Vosne spice. Velvety, smooth in the mouth. Young and primary, but showing wonderfully especially in the context of the vintage.
Red
2014 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Chaignots France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
So much pure black cherry and spice. Young, primary and approachable with polished black fruit. Lots of upside from here.
Red
2012 Arnaud Ente Volnay 1er Cru Santenots-Du-Milieu France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru
Yes, there is a reductive note here but the fruit behind is very polished, ripe and exuberant. Good freshness and lift throughout. Once the reduction fades, this will be an early drinking and fine Volnay.
Red
1996 Henri Jouan Clos St. Denis France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos St. Denis Grand Cru
93 points
A very serious if understated CSD. Good fresh savory and spicy black cherry. Nice persistence throughout. Still young.
